5 week old dilute calico polydactly tailess needs help by July 4

July 1st, 2006, 06:12 PM
This morning we pulled a tiny 5 week old polydactyl dilute calico long haired kitten who has no tail. She was completely impacted and not doing very well. She has been to the vet and will remain there until tuesday as she was bleeding rectally and in some distress. We made her comfortable and removed the impaction. She will be watched and given whatever medical attention she needs until Tuesday. Despite her having given quite the bite during the procedure she started purring and snuggling right after. She needs someone who can care for her and find her an appropriate home. Preferably someone with experience with tailess cats. Please contact should you be able to help her as of tuesday. Thank you.

Okay, I guess that's me. Between Harry (from Lucky) and Egg (from the US but found on this board), I seem to be an expert on tailless cats and their inherent problems. Diapering, no problem! Impactation, lactulose to the rescue! J, please PM me.
